    Default Best Pine fragrances

    I was thinking of getting Pino Silvestre as a good piney cologne. But are there any other decent colognes that also have a good, pine base?
    Thanks

    Ralph Lauren Polo lots of green and wood. Vintage power house is the choice.

    If you don't mind a bit of oud mixed with pine - Aoud & Pine by Montale. Otherwise, Fille en Aiguilles - Serge Lutens

    I concur with the Hippo. For a designer scent, I would recommend tracking down a bottle of Burberry Brit Limited Edtiion from a few years back. It was a winter edition that smells strongly of pine.

    +1 Polo Vintage
    +1 Norne
    +1 FEA

    Those are the 3 that come to mind above all others for me.

    Dior Granville is also pretty good.

    Also the now discontinued Creed Epicea if you can still find it.

    A nice cheapie with a pine smell is Ted Lapidus Pour Lui. Nice vanilla and cedar note mixed in with it. Last at least 8 hours.

    Norne is the best I've run across by far, although it's not solely pine. L'Eau Trois is pretty good too.

    These two and I'll add Wazamba.

    Here are a bunch of other options you might want to consider:

    Dior Granville
    Knize Forest
    Lalique White
    Comme Des Garcons Hinoki
    Eloge Du Traitre

    I would recommend Arso by Profumum Roma. That's pine on fire.

    Absolutely agree with this as well as with other recommendations so far. I'll add a new one to the mix - Imaginary Authors' Cape Heartache.

    +1 Esencia, Polo, Norne for sure. I also think Itasca by Lubin is quite good, but longevity is really bad on me.
    My Ultimate Top 5:

    Fahrenheit (1988)
    Le Vetiver Itasca (2010)
    Burberry London (2006)
    Eau des Baux (2006)
    Arpege pour Homme (2005)

    My favorite pine scent is ELDO's Eloge du Traitre. If you like your pine dialed to 9, try Blenheim Bouquet by Penhaligon's.

    Crown Perfumery Town & Country: excellent improvement upon Blenheim Bouquet, British countryside perfection.
    Creed Epicea: smokey, resinous fir befitting of 18th Century Russian aristocrats.

    Fou d'Absinthe is worth a shot. I like Pino Sylvestre, Granville & Filles en Aiguilles. I had high hopes for the recent Santa Maria Novella but it's a bit wan.
